Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So, just doing a little venting here forgive me!! but I live with my fiance and his father I am having a hard time with his dad, he keeps giving Nala people food behind our backs although we tell him all of the time that just because she is cute and she gives you the puppy eyes doesn't mean that you give her people food! It drives me insane and I'm not sure what to do about it.  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad 


Also, he buys her the beggin strips and milk bones I don't find them horrible but I would rather give her better quality treats. But before I get the chance to tell his father not to get them, he goes to Walmart and buys them. I'm just wondering what is your opinion on those treats I've read not so good things about them and its starting to scare me since he had just went and bought some last weekend I would feel awful just throwing them away!

Anything helps!

Maybe you should go buy a couple bags of treats you feel is healthier and higher quality and leave them on the counter, so he knows to give her those instead of the other. I'm sure he would rather use those up instead of buying more when there's already plenty to give her.

I still use milk bones. Our dog when I was growing up always got one in the morning for her breakfast, night time was canned vets or strong heart dog food, she was fifteen or better when she had to be put down. I only use them now in smaller pieces, I'll break a big bone into three and feed them out for behaving wile nail trimming and things like that.

I'm with Kelly if it really bothers you that much. I only use milk bones to stuff kongs and I don't typically use beggin' strips but my sister just bought a huge bag so we ripped them into tiny pieces about the size of my pinkie nail to use in our training treats jar. I normally use Natural Balance tub foods and cut it up, put a small jar in the fridge and freeze the rest! Costs me ten dollars and last a long time. The only down side is it takes forever to cut up and my hand cramps up haha

I also buy these when I go to a particular grocery store. They seem to be a decent price: http://www.glennsmarket.com/Section/Online_Ordering/Dog_Food_%26_Treats/Wanna_Treat_Freeze_Dried/index.html
